Another Carnahan Running for Office


St. Louis, MO – Another Carnahan is getting into politics. Robin Carnahan, the daughter of former Senator Jean and the late Governor Mel Carnahan, says she'll run for Missouri Secretary of State next year. Current Secretary of State Matt Blunt is expected to run for Governor.

That word comes just days after one of Robin's brothers, Russ, announced he's running for Congress.

Robin Carnahan is a St. Louis attorney; the Democrat says she has formed a committee and is raising money for next year's election.

Republican state Senator Sarah Steelman of Rolla said in April she also plans to run for the office.

Russ Carnahan wants to fill the St. Louis-area congressional seat being vacated by Dick Gephardt.
